There are a couple of configuration differences between it and traditional dosemu, and it does not appear that it can handle both being installed at the same time. But I'm sure you can imagine how excited I am offering original tradewars on my 64 bit modern linux BBS :) I'm also a fan of TWGS and have licensed it, but regardless the increased compatibility makes me feel hopeful.
I have pkzip and unzip working without dpmi.. do you have them working with dpmi?
I tried installing the new fork of dosemu - dosemu2 - to see if it fixed any compatibility issues with DPMI things like pkunzip, darklands, tradewars 2002. I'm happy to report that it's an excellent package and everything is working great. I highly encourage folks to give it a shot!

Yep - they work fine with dpmi. The dosemu2 project is working /very/ well for me. :)
I had it working in dosemu, and from what I can tell the configs are supposed to be the same?
I decided to try Dosemu2 again after your post about how well it worked. First thing out of the box, my keyboard just types random characters. I thought it was a layout issue, but my layout is "US". Can I ask if you built from source or installed the PPA (Ubuntu I assume) packages?
I migrated the BBS to Docker a couple months ago and this broke my
dosqemu multinode NFS stuff. Before I go fixing this, I really want Dosemu2 to work so I don't have to put the effort in again :)
Yeah, I hear ya. It wasn't super straightforward but the doorgame compatibility made it worthwhile. I'd be happy to try to help in real
time on IRC or wherever.
Any hints on dosemurc file contents for DPMI compatibility with TW2002, etc...?
Anyways, DUDE thanks for the update on this. I tried Dosemu2 about a
year or more ago and it just broke miserably with DPMI.
Very cool - maybe there's a way to make a recipe here for other people
